Full description
Meet your local guide and start the tour in a comfortable private vehicle. The first stop will be at San Cristobal Hill. Take a cable car to the summit and enjoy the most amazing panoramic views of the entire city and Andes Mountains. Afterward, drive through the bohemian neighborhood of Bellavista before arriving in the historic city center. Visit the landmarks of downtown such as the Florestal Park, the Museum of Fine Arts, Plaza de Armas (Santiago’s main square), the Cathedral, City Hall, Historic Post Office, Old Congress Building, Palacio La Moneda (The Government House), National Theater, and Santa Lucía Hill. You will also pass through the vibrant bohemian neighborhood of Lastarria before leaving the center. Then, discover the financial heart of Santiago, known for its modern buildings and impressive glass skyscrapers. Pass by Costanera Center, South America’s tallest building. You will see why this area is known as “Sanhattan” among the locals. Also, visit the upscale neighborhood of Las Condes and stop at El Pueblito de Los Dominicos, a beautiful handicraft market with local artisans.

Important information

Know before you go

  • (1) The order of the stops may vary depending on your pickup location.
  • (2) Traffic can be heavy at times and may cause delays in the tour return time. Your driver will do his or her best to avoid highly congested areas.
  • (3) El Pueblito Handicrafts Village may be closed on certain holidays.
  • (4) On weekends and national holidays, due to excessive crowds and lines to board the gondola at San Cristobal Hill, we will not take the gondola, but rather we will visit an alternative site in the tour van for panoramic views of the city and surrounding mountains. We will do the same on Mondays, since the gondola is closed for maintenance on this day.
  • (5) Santa Lucia Hill is closed on Monday.
